The South Tucson Lions Vision Screening Team completed the Lionistic Year by screening 22,500 children. We screened in public schools, charter schools, private schools, preschools and in homes. Our eight, State Certified volunteer screeners, which included our President, 1stVP and 2ndVP, completed this task with almost 2,000 hours of service. Our goal for next year is 30,000 children, of which we have already signed up 24,000.
We recently signed an agreement with the Tucson Catholic Diocese to screen all of their 7,000 children, this is in addition to a similar agreement we have with the Sunnyside Unified School District. Our NASN program at SUSD and Flowing Wells Unified provided almost 200 children exams and glasses. We were recognized as a Tucson Community Partner by Tucson Unified School District, received recognition from Sunnyside Unified and received a Ben’s Bells Award, in addition to several mentions in the press and on TV.
